Katelyn Pettit - Editor

Detroit, MI, United States

Content editor specializing in YA/MG genres. I offer thorough, in-depth critiques to help you perfect your story and characters.

Overview

I have been a freelance editor for three years, working with authors whose manuscripts fall into the Young Adult and Middle-Grade genres. I love working on novels in their earlier stages, providing thorough, in-depth content edits and editorial assessments on style, consistency, plot, characterization, and structure. I have also copy-edited proofread academic works for undergraduate and graduate students (both native English speakers and non-native English speakers) in a wide variety of subjects, including Ecology, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Medicine, History, English, Communications, and Architecture.
